I believe that my grandmother purchased a lovely collection of cloth dolls in their ethnic costume when she traveled to India in the 1930's. This doll dressed as a Muslim from India is part of the collection - He stands at 12" tall and is jointed at the shoulders and hips. His face is hand stitched and he has a molded nose and ears. His clothing is well made and exquisitely detailed - I have tried to capture some of this detail in the pictures! He was obviously hand made with great care and his clothing has never been removed. His cloth body and costume is clean, free from any odor and in very good condition.
Cloth dolls dressed in ethnic costume from India are listed in this shop as the following item numbers (I have titled each doll in accordance to their description handwritten by my grandmother in about 1930) :
#125 (Man and woman dressed as Hindu peasants from India)
#182 (Parsee man and woman from India)
#183 (Man dressed as a Muslim from India)
#185 (Lady of high cast, India)
#189 (Hindu woman from India)
#190 (Young girl from India)
*My desire is to present each of my dolls with accuracy so that there are no surprises. I encourage you to request additional photos and to ask questions about things that are important to you before purchasing - I will happily oblige. Thank you for your interest!
